Wombat Wednesday: Alcazar de Seville

Travels of Adam? Travels of a wombat. Wombat Wednesday is a photo series of Mr. Wombat in places all around the world.

Alcazar

I really need to stop writing about Sevilla. But it’s too hard to resist.

Sevilla’s Royal Alcazar (the old Moorish palace) was probably my favorite attraction there. It’s an important historical place. Like so much of southern Spain, the palace was passed back and forth between the Moors and the Christians. If I remember correctly, Ferdinand & Isabella signed the document that sent Christopher Columbus off to find America in 1492 in one of the buildings of the Alcazar.

Not only is its history interesting, its design is excellent. Gardens, arches & patterns are everywhere. Easy to find inspiration, yeah?

  1. Lucky he's got a friend like me to take him places!

  2. Lucky Mr. Wombat visiting Seville.

  3. I love Alcazar too, even though when I was there it was really a hot summer day and I got soooo dehidrated (and laying down on bench in one of the gardens for a while). They have this light purple flowery/leafy trees when I was there, so pretty. http://www.vagabondquest.com/spain/friday-photo
